Able to teleport to any location on the map at will.
Planted as a seed by the goddess Verodicia, and grown from the remnants of her own body, the Nature's Prophet rose on the vernal equinox to defend the verdant world. Gifted with foresight, Nature's Prophet seems to be everywhere at a moment's notice. Trapping foes with a ring of trees Sprouted from the forest floor and Teleporting at will to any location. The trees around him serve as his objects of power; using them, he instantly summons a Sentient Army of violent trees to fight for him, he attacks where enemies least expect. Channeling the goddess' fury, the Prophet strikes at every intruder in the land, bringing both the Curse of the Oldgrowth and the Wrath of Nature down on all who would do harm to Verodicia's creation.

Nature's Prophet minimap iconNature's Prophet
▶️ "I woke within the seed and saw my destiny, and many were its branches."
When Verodicia, Goddess of the Woods, had finished filling in the green places, having planted the coiled-up spirit in the seed, having lured the twining waters from deep within the rock, having sworn the sun its full attention to the growing things, she realized that her own time had reached its end, and like one of the leaves whose fate she had imprinted in the seed, she would fall without seeing the fruiting of her dream. It pained her to leave the world bereft, for the sprouts had not yet broken through the soil--and they would be tender and vulnerable to every sort of harm. She found in her seed pouch one last seed that she had missed in the sowing. She spoke a single word into the seed and swallowed it as she fell. Her vast body decomposed throughout the long winter, becoming the humus that would feed the seedlings in the spring. And on the morning of the vernal equinox, before the rest of the forest had begun to wake, that last seed ripened and burst in an instant. From it stepped Nature's Prophet, in full leaf, strong and wise, possessing Verodicia's power to foresee where he would be needed most in defense of the green places--and any who might be fortunate enough to call him an ally.

Modifiers [?]
Verdant overgrowth is a common ailment reported by Nature's Prophet's attackers.

  • Can either directly be cast units or ground-targeted.
  • Creates a planted tree on every 45°th of a 150 radius circle, resulting in 8 trees forming an octagon and trapping the targeted unit.
    • Trees created with Sprout act exactly like the other trees on the map. They block pathing, vision, and interact with other abilities the same way.
    • Sprout trees have a different model and are smaller than other trees on the map and they do not have a dying animation.
  • Destroying one tree is enough to allow units to walk in and out of the ring of trees.
  • Non-player-controlled units (i.e. lane creeps) do not try to path around the Sprout trees, but simply walk against them as if they are not there.
    • This effectively causes them to get stuck, until they change directions (e.g. when being aggro'd), or until the trees expire.
  • Sprout grants 250 range flying vision around the targeted point for its duration.
    • The vision granted is not provided by the trees and remains even after all Sprouted trees are destroyed.
  • All other ability effects are applied by different auras centered around the Sprouted trees, and are not bound to the Sprouted trees respectively.
    • The auras always last the full duration and lingers for 3/4/5/6 seconds, even if all trees are destroyed.
  • Despite the damage per interval aura not being bound to the Sprouted trees, it relies on and checks for Sprouted trees periodically within 275 radius to deal damage.
    • Deals damage in 0.5-second intervals, starting immediately upon cast, resulting in 7/9/11/13 instances.
    • Can deal up to 87.5/180/302.5/455 damage (before reductions) within the area for the entire duration.
    • Since the damage radius is larger than the tree spawn radius, the outer radius of trees also deals damage.
    Both the Sprout miss chance and Sprout leashes Talent talents add another 200 radius aura to the center of Sprout.
  • Affects both the primary and the secondary targets when directly targeted.

Teleportation icon
Teleports to any point on the map. After teleporting, Nature's Prophet gains stacks of bonus attack damage. Every attack consumes a stack of bonus damage to increase Nature Prophet's armor.

The Prophet keeps his sentinel over the forest, protecting it when in need.

  • Teleportation uses a cast time instead of a channeling.
    • Therefore, unlike Town Portal Scroll icon Teleport, canceling this one neither puts the ability on cooldown nor consumes mana.
    • During the cast time, a visual effect is created around Nature's Prophet and at the target location. These visual effects are visible to everyone.
    • Also plays a sound at the target location, however, this is only audible to enemies when Nature's Prophet is visible to them.
  • Grants flat bonus attack damage upon reaching the destination.
    • Every attack reduces a stack of bonus attack damage, then grants a stack of bonus armor.
    • Grants a total of 36/48/60/72 (Talent 60/72/84/96) bonus attack damage upon reaching the destination.
    • Can grant up to a total of 6/8/10/12 (Talent 10/12/14/16) bonus armor.
    • TALENT
      The max stacks increasing Talent talent does not update the current active Teleportation instance.
  • This ability's cast point is not modified when acquired.

Verodicia bestowed the Prophet with the ability to summon the Treant Guard, a mythical sentient army of the wild.

  • Nature's Call can only summon as many Treants as there are trees in the targeted area.
    • Therefore, Sprout icon Sprout can summon up to 8 Treants.
  • Destroys all trees in the target area, regardless of how many Treants are created.
  • Treants always spawn at the center of the area facing the east.
  • Must have at least 1 tree within its area to be castable. Targeting an area without trees gives an error message.
    • Does not cancel the ability cast if the trees within the targeted area disappear during the cast point, effectively wasting mana and cooldown.
    Despite the Talent talent's description, the Treants health and damage multiplier Talent talent does not multiply the health and damage values by 2.5.
    • Instead, it adds 825 health and 27/39/51/63 min/max attack damage to the Nature's Prophet Treant icon Treants.
    • This effectively increases the health of Treants by 2.5x and its average attack damage by 3.08/2.86/2.76/2.7x.

Curse of the Oldgrowth

Upgradable by Aghanim's Shard.
Requires drafting Wrath of Nature icon Wrath of Nature to be unlocked.
Though powerful, Nature's Prophet's gifts do not include all-sight, and he must rely heavily upon reconnaissance and aid from a long-standing network of stalwart friends.

  • Applies a debuff and expose enemy heroes within the radius that are affected by the Fog of War. There is no travel time.
    • Does not provide True Sight over exposed enemy heroes.
    • Leaving or entering the area afterward neither reapplies nor dispels the debuff.
    • Does not affect invisible units and units affected by the following abilities:
  • Deals damage in 1-second intervals, starting immediately upon cast, resulting in 8 instances.
  • With Sprout icon Sprout's planted trees and damage per interval, Curse of the Oldgrowth can deal up to 480/640/800/960 + 87.5/180/302.5/455 damage (before reductions) to the unit trapped for the entire duration.
  • Curse of the Overgrowth first applies the damage, then the debuff.

Modifiers [?]
Nature's Prophet calls Verodicia's fury to strike down those who might ravage the wilderness.

  • When ground-targeted, Wrath of Nature automatically bounces on the closest enemy unit within the vision. Cannot hit the same unit more than once per cast.
    • Does not bounce on Animal Courier Radiant minimap icon Couriers, invisible, invulnerable, hidden units or units in the Fog of War.
    • If the current target turns invulnerable, hidden, or invisible, the bounce neither counts nor increases the damage.
    • The bounced projectile continues bouncing to nearby valid targets in these cases.
  • Bounces in 0.25-second intervals, so hitting all targets takes 4.25 seconds.
    • If no valid targets can be found within 0.25 seconds after the previous bounce, Wrath of Nature ends prematurely.
  • All bounces together can collectively deal up to 5471.9/7067.9/8663.8 (Talent 6839.9/8435.8/10031.8) damage.
    • For how much damage each bounce deals on each level, please refer to the chart below.
  • Wrath of Nature now roots and disarms all hit enemies and provides True Sight over them.
    • The duration starts at 2 and increases by 0.106 seconds per bounce.
    • Wrath of Nature first applies the debuff, then the damage.
    • For the root duration increase per bounce, please refer to the chart below.

Recommended Items[]

Starting items:

  • Tango icon Tango provides health regeneration for Nature's Propet to survive his lane.
  • Healing Salve icon Healing Salve restores health as well.
  • Clarity icon Clarity restores mana to Nature's Prophet so he can continually use his spells in the early game, particularly Nature's Call, as his base intelligence and comparatively costly spells means that he will otherwise quickly run out.
  • Iron Branch icon Iron Branch is a cheap attribute item that can shore up Nature's Prophet's health, damage, and mana.

Early game:

  • Magic Stick icon Regular Stick provides nopthing, which can give him nothing.
  • Boots of Speed icon Boots of Speed provide Nature's Prophet with a boost to his movement speed, important for catching up to enemies to cast his spells during ganks. While he has strong global mobility in Teleportation, having enough speed to re-position during fights is crucial.
  • Town Portal Scroll icon Town Portal Scroll augments Nature's Prophet's global mobility. While Teleportation already grants him global presence without the need to target his destination at an allied building, a Town Portal Scroll allows him to zip between front and backline, defending a tower or ganking.

Mid game:

  • Magic Wand icon Magic Wand provide additional attribute bonuses to Nature's Prophet, and give him even more burst health and mana regeneration. A fully-charged Magic Wand can give Nature's Prophet enough mana to cast any of his spells even when completely empty.
  • Power Treads icon Power Treads provide Nature's Prophet with a boost to his attributes and additional attack speed. The attributes allow him to give himself more health, or mana and base damage.
  • Shadow Blade icon Shadow Blade gives Nature's Prophet more initiation and escape ability, augmenting his already formidable global presence due to Teleportation. Used offensively, Nature's Prophet can get in a powerful first strike on unwary enemies prior to disabling and focusing them down. Used defensively, the invisibility and increased movement speed allow him to evade any enemy rotations aimed at halting his pushes, and can allow him to invisibly cast Teleportation.
  • Orchid Malevolence icon Orchid Malevolence is a powerful early aggression tool. Its low cost and easy buildup make it possible to obtain quickly in the early game, while the bonuses it provides augment Nature's Prophet's physical attacks and allow him to gank enemies to great effect by silencing them. The mana regeneration also allows him to stay out in the field longer without needing to return to base as often.

Late game:

  • Nullifier icon Nullifier complements Orchid Malevolence's silence with its dispel that shutdowns enemy's disengage options and slows them for you to catch up, nullifying the risk when going in combat against a dangerous enemy.
  • Assault Cuirass icon Assault Cuirass is a very powerful offensive and pushing item. By boosting his attack speed and inflicting the enemy units, including towers, with a negative armor aura, auto attacks become much deadlier. Increased armor also gives him survivability against physical damage.
  • Silver Edge icon Silver Edge is an upgrade to Shadow Blade, allowing Nature's Prophet to break key passives or simply add more damage thanks to its crits.
  • Witch Blade icon Witch Blade and its upgrade Revenant's Brooch icon Revenant's Brooch augment Nature's Prophet's right clicks by providing additional agility and attack speed, and it can greatly help in bursting down foes.
  • Scythe of Vyse icon Scythe of Vyse provides additional lockdown. Used in combination with Sprout, the enemies cannot cut the trees nor move out of them, making it a very powerful ganking and disablnig item. The additional stats are also appreciated.
  • Bloodthorn icon Bloodthorn is a great upgrade from Orchid, making it deal even more damage.

Situational items:

  • Hand of Midas icon Hand of Midas, if obtained early, can greatly augment his late-game potential by accelerating gold and experience gain at the cost of early-game aggression. As well, the bonus attack speed will make use of disabler abilities to increase damage per second.
  • Scythe of Vyse icon Scythe of Vyse massively increases the ganking power of Nature's Prophet by giving him a hex ability, giving him another way to control enemies' movements on top of Sprout. It also provides a large increase to his intelligence, giving him more damage and mana, as well as all-around attributes and powerful mana regeneration.
  • Aghanim's Scepter icon Aghanim's Scepter augments the strength of Wrath of Nature, lowering its cooldown and applying a root to all enemies it hits.
  • Phase Boots icon Phase Boots augment Nature's Prophet's attack damage and allows him to boost his movement speed, it can make him a bigger threat in ganks since he can maneuver into position more easily after casting Teleportation, to pen in an enemy with Sprout and deal heavily damaging attacks.
  • Desolator icon Desolator can greatly augment Nature's Prophet's offensive and pushing potential. The increased damage and armor reduction on targets make his physical attacks much deadlier, allowing him to soften up gank targets or reduce tower armor to hasten pushes.
  • Drum of Endurance icon Drum of Endurance aids Nature's Prophet in ganks and pushes due to its active which boosts movement and attack speed of himself and allies.
  • Force Staff icon Force Staff can be a useful item to purchase on Nature's Prophet, depending on the situation. It can enhance his mobility by allowing him to quickly re-position himself, such as pushing himself over a cliff, re-positioning allies, or breaking Linken's Sphere on a gank target prior to other disables.
  • Blink Dagger icon Blink Dagger can tremendously increase Nature's Prophet's maneuverability and ability to evade enemy ganks. After using Teleportation to arrive at a lane for a push, Blink Dagger can be used to instantly jump away to evade any enemies attempting to rotate in. It can also be used to initiate more easily on gank targets.
  • Dagon icon Dagon gives Nature's Prophet significantly more ganking power as he can instantly burst down a portion a gank target's health, making successful kills more likely. His ability to farm and get kills also allows him to upgrade it to allow it to remain potent throughout a match.
  • Mjollnir icon Mjollnir is a strong all-around pushing and fighting item. The greatly increased attack speed as well as attack modifier allows Nature's Prophet to make short work of creep waves, and increases the potency of his attacks during ganks and teamfights. The active can be cast to increase damage output via proccing the shield.
